Introducing the end of the NYT

So, has anyone heard about this? The New York Times is going to begin charching $50/year for access to its online op/ed page. Yowza. They must think that's some mighty good opining going on there.

Honestly, I understand that newspapers have been inevitably moving towards a paid-access situation for their websites. Their circulations have decreased over the last several years because of the explosion of online journalism (among other reasons).

But c'mon. Fifty dollars? The NYT is not worth that much. You can find much, much better opinion amongst the blogs and other sources for free. And they usually give you useful information.
